Aguirre: The NSA won a skirmish today in the legal battle over government surveillance. San Francisco’s Electronic Frontier Foundation lost it’s bid to prevent the government from destroying e-mails it’s accused of gathering from millions of Americans. NBC Bay Area’s Mark Matthews is live with why the NSA is claiming victory tonight. Matthews: At least for the short term. This case dates back eight years, back to a time when a technician at an AT&T building in San Francisco reported what he said was massive government spying on Americans' internet and e-mail communications. Mark Klein said it was happening inside this AT&T building on Folsom. He said it was happening in room 641 A, reporting that the phone company had installed a splitter on their internet cables routing everything into a bank of NSA computers.
